View topic - 日曜日に vs 日曜日は
So do you use に or は with the days of the week? Really confused.

could be the start of a sentence, and although -most- time-designations go early in a sentence, days of the week are still nouns that can be used elsewhere in a sentence. (僕は月曜日が大嫌いです for example, if you wanted to be particularly literal in saying 'I hate Mondays').
日曜日は忙しいです in particular is because the sentence is like 'Sunday is busy (for me)'.
Just as you wouldn't say 'On Sunday is busy' you don't use 「に」 here.
As for times when you -do- use に ... I'm don't really trust myself to write a perfect sentence, but there are many sentences you can see here that were at least written by natives (although many of them are translations from English), so they should be somewhat natural:
